The Tap House specializes in Baltimore Style Pit Meat. This preparation involves rubbing a high-quality piece of meat with a special housemade spice mixture and allowing it to marinate for three days. The meat is then seared on a specially installed pit grill which chars the outside and cooks it juicy and tender on the inside. Finally it is sliced paper thin and served on a kaiser roll. A variety of meats are pit grilled in this fashion and served according to your desires. Popular choices include the Pit Beef served with raw onions and homemade horseradish sauce or the Pit Pork served with buttermilk coleslaw and sweet habanero barbecue sauce. Additionally, a diner can choose from a menu including gourmet hamburgers, home baked pretzels, ale steamed mussels, shells & cheese and a full selection of desserts. Vegetarian options are available and our staff would be happy to accommodate dietary needs.

The menu is good. The food was good. The pictures in the wall are from another era in that they looked like the calendars one used to see hanging dive gas stations on backroads. They are not artistically interesting they only serve to make women uncomfortable in the era of #metoo

Great service. Great atmosphere. Great beer selection. The daily happy hour is good.
The food isn’t. It wasn’t really that tasty honestly. We had the artichoke dip. A few chips that were stale, a few pieces of bread. It was overpriced for what you got. Then had the pork and beef sandwiches. They were “meh”.
The waiter was attentive and very friendly though. And great beer selection. It was close to HUGE theater where we saw a show. That was a plus. Probably wouldn’t go back to this place though, there’s too many other better places to eat around there.

My husband and I went for a restaurant week date night. We both liked our sandwhiches and the pretzels were delicious.
Neither of us could finish our food... definitely will not go hungry here! The atmosphere of the place was casual and although it was trendy, it did not feel like your run-of-the-mill uptown joint.

The restaurant smells old and musty. They were understaffed and therefore we sat for long periods of time without being checked on (people out of drinks, needing food items, etc.). Our server was super nice and friendly but we could tell she was overwhelmed with tables and wasn't able to give much attention to any of them. This was especially disappointing considering it was during restaurant week where people are coming in to try a place they might have never been before - our whole group of 5 was newcomers and I wouldn't go back.

Due to reading mixed recent reviews, I was a little concerned about having chosen this spot for a quick meet-up/burger with a pal. But we had a great time ... enjoyed the last 1/2 hour of a happy hour (every day, 4-7 pm, I believe) which meant 2 glasses of wine for the price of 1 (yay!). Our server was friendly and pleasant and did fill us in on Happy Hour pricing. Got appetizers for 'dinner' just because there were a few we wanted, and all were good-to-better than I expected (fish taco/pretzels/walleye bites). For sure it's 'bar comfort food' oriented, but that's what we wanted ... so all good. Decent house pour for wines, plenty of beers to choose from and a super nice open-to-the outside patio. Parking is right behind it (same parking as for Fuji-Ya) ... $2. for 2 hours. Not bad in Uptown. I'll absolutely go here again.

Very disappointed in the service - slow, not attentive. Loved the menu and think the food would have been good but it was cold-cold. Ordered appetizer of cheese curds that actually were hot and good but they came with all of the other food - which was cold, especially the french fries. Also, ordered the BBQ sauce on the side - it wasn't - and menu said roasted peach coleslaw - it wasn't. Restaurant was not busy at all so not sure why such a lack of service and cold food - great concept, great menu - only wish it would have been executed better.

We went for their happy hour and had the nachos with the French fries and the bread sticks
The good news: the breadsticks were awesome!
The bad news: everything else was crap.
The nachos had cheese whiz on it. $16 nachos with cheese whiz?? Seriously?
And the added chicken had some sort of sweet flavor to it that was not good. Was actually nauseating.
The fries were like a pile of cheese edible heart attack.

The server was the one that recommended them so... yeah, the service was poor, slow and not terribly honest about what was worth ordering

Excellent experience during Restaurant week. We had to take the dessert home in a box since the appetizer and sandwich were more than enough food. Good beer selection with a 2 for 1 happy hour (be advised that 2 of the same beer arrive together).

The service here was impeccable. Let us take our time with menu and beer list but checked on us frequently enough to be efficient. Nice variety of local beers and the cheese curds!! Oh, the curds!! Yum.

However, when it came to the entree, the pit was unimpressive. Tasted reheated and the sauce was overpowering. Though the service was excellent and beers were adequate, I don't know that I'd pay that price for a meal there again.

I went with a friend and we both really enjoyed our meals. We started with the bean dip which was nice although maybe a more interesting bread with it would be better. The dip itself was good. We both chose pit beef sandwiches, I had the Thai Dragon and my friend had the Italian. We both loved our sandwiches and the sides. We also ordered wings to go and those were good the next day as well. Nothing fancy about the place but a great place for a quick lunch or group dinner and beer. I'll be back for sure!

They have a great happy hour 7 days a week. 2 for 1's on all tap beers from 4-7. The apps are $2 off as well and the scotch eggs are fantastic. Their signature sandwiches are spot on, and if you like spicy try the Thai Dragon. A great place to go for any reason, including watching sports. Our server was one of the best servers we have had in a LONG time!
